The annual winter bug count occurs throughout December, January, and February for Alberta and Saskatchewan. Any arthropod (insect, spider, sowbug, etc) found active indoors or out, on land or in water (but not including pets or pet food) counts. Take a photo if you don't know what you have found and post it on the Winterbugs Alberta Facebook page for help in identifying it. Click here to watch a YouTube video description of the event by Naturalist John Acorn.
